The Volunteer Money Management Program at Senior Connections provides older adults, age 60 and over, support with their monthly bill-paying chores. Trained volunteers visit program participants in their homes each month and assist with budgeting and bill-paying tasks. The Volunteer Money Management Program helps older adults live independently so they can remain in their homes and stay protected against exploitation.
